Editorial Reviews

HANSON's fifth studio album, Shout It Out, is a collection of finely crafted, R&B-flavored pop, an homage to the music that inspired HANSON when they started out in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma - 60's soul and 70's songwriters. The album produced and written exclusively by the band is augmented with special guests: Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt, who played on some of Motown's greatest hits, and horn arranger Jerry Hey, who worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind and Fire, and many more.

Perfect album for the summer... lots of great songs you can't wait to blare through your speakers with the windows down.

Thinking 'bout Somethin' - Any song with perfect use of cowbell is a-ok in my book. Adding Weird Al to the mix? Gold. This song is pure summer.
Give A Little - This song with get everyone moving on their feet. I can't NOT listen to it in my car without boppin' around.
And I Waited - The drum intro alone pulls you in. The lyrics are fun to sing along to.
Me Myself and I - Beautiful piano and a great album exit song.

Could Live Without: All tho I absolutely LOVE the story/theme/verses behind Voice In The Chorus, the 'chorus' itself is a bit redundant.

Missing: Ike Solo??? Where are you??? First album ever without an Isaac solo... my poor heart can't take it.

I'm giving it five stars because even Hanson's 'worst song' is still better than 98.76% of the crap that's played on the radio.

This Hanson record not only met my expectations but exceeded them. It's fun, catchy, a little sassy. I love it. It sounds fresh and perfect to blast on the stereo all summer.

Criticism that the lyrics aren't as deep as some would like baffle me. Hanson can't win. They've had so many beautiful lyrics and moving song topics over the years, which people ragged on for not being upbeat enough, and now they do an album of pure fun, old school pop music and everyone talking about the lack of lyrical depth. Given the average intelligence of lyrics I hear in "popular" music, and all the mainstream emo bullcrap and rappers singing about smackin' something, this album is leaps and bounds above the rest. I'm not saying it's super deep, but that's exactly what the album calls for. FUN. It's a throwback to older days when pop wasn't a dirty word. The horns add extra zest, and it's just refreshing all the way around.

Stand out tracks: Give a little, Kiss Me When You Come Home, And I Waited and Use Me Up

Go get this album! You won't regret it! :)

If you liked "This Time Around", chances are you'll love "Shout It Out". The last two Hanson albums ("The Walk" and "Underneath") were gentler and more introspective, but "Shout It Out" is an upbeat party for the ears. Taylor's voice is as fabulous as ever, and he sings lead on most of the tracks.

The brothers' lean, tight core is supplemented by a fat, funky horn section on several tracks, notably "Thinkin' 'Bout Somethin'" and "Voice in the Chorus". Musically, Hanson does what they do best--gospel-tinged vocals, bluesy riffs and classic rock rhythms dripping with pop hooks and catchy choruses that you can't get out of your head. Lyrically, things are a bit lighter than in recent years--no African orphans appear on this album--with the notable exception of the ballad "Me, Myself,and I", which is the darkest of the songs on this collection.

If you haven't heard Hanson since their 90s heartthrob days, it's worth giving them a fresh listen. They just might surprise you with their musical integrity and pop/rock sensibility. They've managed to do something dozens of child stars and one-hit-wonders failed to do: keep on doing what they're good at, despite the naysayers.

After the emotional and mature effort of 2007's THE WALK, I was looking forward to this album. I liked the direction their music had taken--strong messages, solid hooks, and a very raw live-from-the-floor feel. SHOUT IT OUT delights in a different way. It is fun, funky, and takes the band back to its 50s and 60s roots.

THINKING 'BOUT SOMETHING is the single for the non-fans. Catchy cowbell and dazzling horns certainly make it one of the dance tunes of the summer, and will probably win them a few new listeners.

Songs like CARRY YOU THERE and MY, MYSELF AND I have a more distinctly "hanson" feel to them. A sound that is a little more grounded and heartfelt.

I give this album a 4 for catchy tunes and solid musicianship. The missing star is for lyrics, which have been stronger in the past (as in BLUE SKY: this hope for answered questions / I swear is true conviction / I stare into the distance / there is no truth in sight) and the lack of lead vocals from oldest brother Issac, who has arguably the smoothest and most technically sound vocals of the band.

Pick up this album for good summer listening, and you won't be disappointed. For something more substantive, see their 2007 release THE WALK.

For many people nowadays Hanson seems to be treated like a taboo in the music world, which I personally don't understand. Tell anyone you listen to Hanson and they get a funny look on their face that you know is linked to a picture of long-haired boys singing Mmmbop on rollerblades back in 1997, but the truth is that Hanson is so much more than Mmmbop, and this album is the perfect example of this.

Shout It Out is a shout out to the good kind of oldies music that all music of the last four-five decades has stemmed from, the soulful, R & B of yesteryear with talented and fun musicians such as Sam & Dave and Otis Redding. There are fun tunes throughout the album such as Waiting for This, the even fun scavenger hunt of musical references that is Thinking 'Bout Somethin' (which has a music video taken almost directly from the 1980 Saturday Night Live classic film The Blues Brothers starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi), saxophone-enhanced Give a Little, Musical Ride and Voice in the Chorus. There is of course a nice balance between upbeat songs and the slow ballads added into the mix, filling the album with a nice alternation of ups and downs but all soulful, thoughtful lyrics and attention to detail from each drumbeat to the icing on the cake: the horn section.

Music fans of all ages will enjoy this well executed album from a band that has been honing their musical talents together for more than a decade and a half and producing albums for the public for thirteen years. This is a great album for road trips, for background music, and for just listening to. I did not listen to Hanson much before this album, but I cannot hear enough of Shout It Out.

Warning: Songs will get stuck in your head.
